Braking The Wrinkles
Much as we don't want to think about it, when our bodies get to a certain age they need a little bit more care than previously - and this certainly applies to our skin. There are a plethora of creams and treatments available for the over-50s, but do they offer much in return for our money?
While the thought of smearing yummy tasty choccie across our faces sparks images of putting on weight rather than slimming down the facial lines, we thought we'd give it a go to find the best creams and pills to put brakes on the ageing process.
So we've compiled a list of anti-ageing skin care pills and potions that we think could help fight the sags, wrinkles and dry skin that afflict those who are 50 plus.
SPF In A Natural Tablet
In a UK first, a clinical study showed a daily tablet could significantly improve skin firmness, reduce wrinkle depth and even provide a natural sun protection factor (SPF) of 10 in 12 weeks and SPF of 15 in 24 weeks. The little pink tablet Colladeen® Visage – a potent mix of natural plant extracts high in lutein and anthocyanidins – has attracted much media attention and incredible sales. Nutritionist Dr Sam Christie PhD comments: “This is a true gem of a product both in terms of its astounding regenerative effects on ageing skin but also its affordability.”
Colladeen® Visage - £18.95 for 60 tablets, visit www.naturesbest.co.uk to buy.

Gemma Aldous, celebrity make-up artist – “I've been working with Sheridan Smith, Jess from Liberty X and Pixie Lott, all of which I have been using Regenerating Collagen Gel as a make-up base… and they all love it!”
A Rejuvenating Boost For Your Eyes!
